Snake

West Virginia DNR biologist Jim Fregonara will present Snakes of West Virginia for the public at Holly River State Park on Friday, July 6th. The reptiles program will be held at 2:00 PM in the Anderson Activities Building.

Fregonara’s interpretative presentation focus is about snakes you may see in the Mountain State, their eating and mating habits, where they are likely to be found, and their life expectancy. “He discusses the difference of non-venomous vs venomous snakes and the important role snakes contribute to the environment” says Jane Birdsong, naturalist at Holly River State Park. “I touched a snake today” stickers are presented as part of the program. The program is free to attend, and all ages are welcome.
